Martin Lewis Shares Ways To Avoid Paying More On Netflix Amid Price Hike

Martin Lewis Shares Ways To Avoid Paying More On Netflix Amid Price Hike

With Netflix's price increase now being rolled out to customers, MoneySavingExpert's Martin Lewis has explained how Brits might be able to avoid paying more.

The standard package will increase from £8.99 per month to £9.99, while the premium package will increase from £11.99 per month to £13.99 per month. The basic subscription package will remain at £5.99 per month.

The price for new customers was increased from 10 December, with the increase now being rolled out to existing customers over the next few months.

Speaking on ITV's Martin Lewis Money Show last night, Lewis explained: "What's my key tip? Well, check now what package you are on. You may be able to downgrade.

"You can only use one device at a time - multiple devices but only one at a time - and it's only SD [standard definition]. It's not HD [high definition] on that one."

You basically need to work out if you really need to be on the standard or premium plan.

A post on the MoneySavingExpert website breaks it down, saying: "If you don't need all the bells and whistles - for example, if you only watch on one screen at a time or aren't fussed about HD or ultra HD - then switching to the £5.99/mth basic package (the price of which is staying the same) could save you up to £96/yr."

Explaining how you can change your plan, the post adds: "To do this, log in to Netflix, go to 'Account' and then under 'Plan Details' hit 'Change plan'. Select the plan you want to switch to, press the 'Continue' button and then 'Confirm change'. You'll be switched to the new plan right away, but won't get money back - you'll pay less the next time you're billed, so do it as close to your next billing date as possible."

"The standard package is £10 a month, you get two devices at a time, and you can watch on HD there," he said.

"Or alternatively, if there's lots of you with membership in one household, well cut that down and go for the premium and you can get four devices for £14 a month, which is cheaper than multiple memberships."

What's more, you can also enjoy some Netflix content for free.

While the streaming service scrapped its 30-day free trial last year, it does offer some shows and films for free.

Lewis added: "What you may also not know about Netflix is you can go to Netflix.com/watch-free and it has some of its shows available for free there and you don't have to pay."

According to the MoneySavingExpert website, free films currently on offer include Bird Box, Murder Mystery and The Two Popes, while free shows include the first episodes of season one for Stranger Things, Our Planet and Grace and Frankie.
